Solution Details

SiQ’s Planning Factory is a true Integrated Business Planning solution with a powerful Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) engine.  While tailored to automotive parts suppliers and OEMs, the solution is equally useful for all manufacturing companies.  The solution leverages OneStream’s data blending functionality to enable the sourcing of operational data such as sales order, purchase order and EDI releases directly from the ERP at a part or component level of detail along with external market volume forecast data.  The solution further provides the means for managing price and manufacturing cost per unit data centrally to enable driver-based calculations at a part level of detail.  The result is a powerful S&OP platform which enables a standardized, automated forecasting and planning process to improve the accuracy, reliability and timeliness of forward-looking information.
